My second Wild Ale, first being RR Sanctification, I enjoyed this brew more.

A: Small, bubbly head with little retention. Audible carbonation rose from this transparent redish brown body.

S: Sourness, cider, cherries, oak barrel notes, and that unmistakable funk.

T: Sourness dominates, variety of fruit flavors present. Oak and vanilla become more apparent as the brew warms, definitely a sipper.

M: Medium bodied, great carbonation, coats mouth thoroughly.

O: Better than my first Wild Ale, but I'm starting to think Wild Ale's aren't my thing.

Sharing with sour beer fan friends Mike n Bryce (homebrewers). Poured with no head or lace. Color is a hazy/cloudy honey amber. Aroma is yeast, sour, oak, sherry, malt. Flavor's similar to taste but not as complex. Body and carbonation are perfect for style. Finish is like flavor, clean, balanced, and a nice alcohol prod. Very nice.
